Timely Reprint: Do You Want Your Music Alongside Hate Rock Songs? Artist Face YouTube Music Dilemma

I light of the Google/YouTube boycott by brands whose ads have appeared next to hate speech.  We thought we’d reprint this piece from November 2014!!

Forget exploitative pay from Spotify! Do you want your music on YouTube Music? Will you be alongside Hate rock songs? Jihadi Recruitment Music Videos? Probably.  YouTube is full of this vile stuff.  And we let our kids watch YouTube?  Why do artist work such an amoral company?  Should artists ask their labels to pull videos from YouTube.  Or will we be complicit?
